At someone's suggestion, I am on week 2 of preparing 4 days worth of lunches and stuffing them in the fridge so I can free up time to get on the treadmill in the morning. I'm not sure why I didn't think of this on my own except for the fact that I'll use just about any excuse to not get on it. Much to my surprise, this change in my handling of my lunches has gotten me back on track. I'm happy to report that salads stay fresh when I use a dry leafy lettuce mix. I also pack up containers of grapes to stick in my lunch box. Easy peazy.
TAKE AWAY: I'm finding that at age 52+ there are
still really good ideas I haven't heard and tried yet.
